Interestingly, the last two days i have found i got bored with the internet and my computer and have ended up resorting to reading an actual printed book for once!
I’m currently trying to finish The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, after reading it on and off for about 2 months! It’s actually getting better now, i was struggling to keep going with it, but yesterday i picked it up and finally got hooked and havent put it down since!
It’s also nice to find i can still sink into the reading mentality, where i tune out everything going on around me and my sole ambition in life is to finish reading the book! For someone who multi-tasks all the time, its quite refreshing to just do one thing!
I just don’t think i could abandon paper printed books totally, i love books too much! They don’t require as much maintenance as, say, a Kindle, which still needs power of some kind! A paper book will just sit nicely on a shelf, or be used as a door-wedge! Or, in my case, the top of my latest read is where my mobile phone lives because then it doesn’t vibrate so loudly! Some people may say, OMG you can’t use a book as a door-wedge, its sacrilege! Well, you can say that, but are you really going to use your Kindle as a door-wedge? No, thought not!
Oh dear, here’s me banging on about my love of paper books again!
I felt i should mention paper books though, because lately i’ve been all technical, checking out the Ipad and its accessories, and looking at alternative tablet computers! Finding myself drooling over them now! I really want one, but my current finances suggest i will have to wait a few months! At least by then i will have decided which to actually buy!
So, now i will get back to my book, and i will be back as soon as i finish it to write my review of it!
